SPF. Thanks for looking. Size 48, must be English because it fits me like a 44L. Practically new, no rips, tears, dirt or worn spots. Never been cleaned or rewaxed. Bought it at Gart Bros. Sportscastle in Denver in 1995 and have only worn it twice since--doesnt breath enough and our climate is not wet enough to appreciate it. $195 shipped in CONUS. First I'll take it gets it. I will PM you for payment and shipping instructions. Thanks to Dave for allowing the sale[img]http://parkerguns.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92053&d=1610740713[[img]http://parkerguns.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92051&d=1610740713[/img]img][img]http://parkerguns.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=92056&d=1610740729[/img]

Ted_ I am at a loss as to how to get pictures posted here. Given Dr. Hause's recent scramble to preserve all his photos, I dont even know a reliable website to upload my pics to and then download them here. I would appreciate any suggestions as to how to get them here. Thanks.

I just went through reproofing both my wax cotton jackets. If they are 20 years old and never done it will need it. I did not use them either much. But decided to do it as they looked fainter and not as bright. Came back stunning. This will preserve the jacket for many years. You will notice the difference

Congrats on the sale, limapapa. Since the ad has run it's course ..........

I once did the initial waxing on a cotton canvas "barn coat". I wanted to try a waxed cotton coat without the expense of a new one so I caught a nice, brown canvas barn/chore coat, flannel lined, on a sale rack. I bought two pint cans of Browning's reproofing wax, heated it carefully in a double boiler and brushed it on, while hot enough to be liquid, being as careful as possible to put it on evenly. I used a two inch wide, new paint brush. It turned out great, and has been one of my favorite lightweight coats for over 25 years. Over the years it's developed a nice patina.

I'm interested in how you reproofed yours too, John.

Here's mine with my 32" A grade Fox:

I used Barbour's wax and reproofed my wife's once and mine twice over 20 years. I used a hair drier to heat the jackets after application which smoothed it out. I melted the wax in a pan of water on the stove and applied with a rag made out an old tee shirt. I laid out contractors Kraft paper from Home Depot on a bed for a work surface which gave me good access. I bought mine far below normal cost at a going out of business sale of a local fly fishing shop and found wife's on a New Zealand site at a fraction of cost in the US including shipping. Gil

Kid:

The Barbour jacket I send back to them. The long Scottis jacket I sent to a place in New England. Barbour only will re-wax their own brand.
